Scott King models the new GEGAC 715 Health Check t-shirt, which you can only get if you get a health check at GEGAC!


Too many of our mob are dying too young.

That’s a cold truth.

The saddest part is that so many of the illnesses and conditions that kill us are preventable.

That’s why you have to get a health check.

Get a health check. Get a health check. There’s no other way to say it.

Good news is that GEGAC provides free 715 Health Checks for mob that help identify whether someone is at risk of illnesses or chronic conditions.

Better news is you get a reward for getting a 715 Health Check.

Your choices of a reward are:

  • $50 Kmart voucher
  • $50 Woolworths voucher
  • Exclusive GEGAC 715 t-shirt

To book your 715 Health Check, or to make an appointment to meet with a member of our Aboriginal Health Team, call GEGAC Medical Reception on 5150 0760.

On Close The Gap Day this week we focus on the tragic fact that while most Australians enjoy one of the highest life expectancies of any country in the world, this is not true for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples can expect to live at least 10 years fewer than other Australians.

Aboriginal people experience higher rates of preventable illnesses such as heart disease, kidney disease and diabetes.

GEGAC Practice Manager Tammy-Lee Chatwin said that free health checks are an important way to reduce these preventable illnesses and premature deaths.

“We want more people in the community to make use of the medical services at GEGAC before serious health issues happen, not after.”

“A health check only takes about an hour, and it helps us catch any issues before they arise or get worse, especially to do with the heart, or conditions that are common in our community like diabetes.”

Through the 715 Health Check program, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of all ages can get a free health check at Aboriginal Medical Services and bulk-billing clinics.

“You do not need to be acutely sick and in crisis for us to help make a difference to your health and well-being!” Tammy said. “Book in for your 715 Health Check, or have a yarn with our new Aboriginal Health Team.”

To book your 715 Health Check, or to make an appointment to meet with a member of our Aboriginal Health Team, call GEGAC Medical Reception on 5150 0760.
